Paint and Painter

I think the thing I love the most about painting is that it's just paint till it hits the canvas. It responds to every move made or not made.  As a young boy I remember a particular day that would eventually change my life, it was my birthday and I was in full anticipation of receiving a BB gun (what else does a young boy want) but instead my father gave me a piece of wood and his old pocket knife saying "It can be anything you want it to be".  That time disappeared as for the wood or the knife for that matter I don't know whatever became of them but the words lived on...

I love the fact that I believe in God and that he helps me through my painting and struggles of daily life. It tends to be a continued conversation that extends from pallet to canvas.  My choice of media is acrylic for it's fast drying properties but I like the movability of oils, with that said most pieces end up as mixed media. For the most part I stretch my own canvas and much prefer the larger surfaces.
